President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has defended the impending nepotism exhibited by his government following a missive he just published moments back on his Twitter handle.

In his missive, Museveni trashed those who peddle sectarian talk and urged them to look elsewhere for wealth as this, he says is not only enshrined in government jobs. Museveni says those who feel that Banyankole have enriched themselves in this government should also set a challenge by starting their own jobs or governments. “On the issue of tribalism, especially referring to jobs of the Public Service, people who push that talk are wasting the time of our people and mis directing them. Jobs and wealth do not come from just being employs in the Public Service,” Museveni opens up in his missive.

He also adds that, “Therefore, even if the Public Service was dominated by the Banyankole, it may not help that community to be any better than the others. Besides, the claim that the Banyankole or westerners are monopolizing the 480,000 Public Service jobs cannot be true.”

He disregards the possibility that the Banyankole can dominate top government slots yet the Public Service has since 1990 not been headed by their tribesmen. “Why and how would those Banyankole dominate the Public Service where the Public Service Commission was last held by a Westerner, the late Mzee Bikangaga from 1979 to 1990?,” he asked.

Although Museveni purports to be preaching against sectarianism and nepotism, his regime has been implicated in a series of scandals regarding the appointments to juicy government slots. Most of the institutions are headed by people from the Western region for instance UNRA which is headed by Allen Kagina, the UPDF headed by CDF David Muhoozi and the police which is headed by Sabiiti Mzee who overshadowed the real IGP, Martin Okoth Ochola, a humble Easterner from Tororo.
